This place is probably your best bet on the island. Its run down, falling apart and the cleaners only seem to clean the middle of the floor. But the staff are very helpful, didn't seem to be many bugs or other wildlife in the room. Its very pricey for what it is.

We arrived on Tuvalu with the expectation to have a relaxed, low standard holiday with no luxury and no entertainment as we knew this island is not a tourist place but what we experienced was way worse and everything but a holiday. All started long before we got there, it took us 4 weeks to reach someone from the hotel.... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights in a quest to visit the worlds countries. I am giving it a 3 based on where it is. I always have a tough time with this rating system because I give The Ritz in London or the Plaza in NYC a 5 and this hotel a 3. I try to rate... More

I have stayed here many times and while it is only a one or two star hotel it has a certain character and very night there is a wonderful sunset. It is a great place to meet a range of strange characters who are passing through from aid agencies, environment groups, people trying to visit 100 countries and people running... More

In Tuvalu, this is the best place because it is central, walking distance from Airport, Government Buildings, etc. You cannot get a rental car and if you cannot ride a scooter like me then this is the best option. It is very hot around nine in the morning so the coolest place is your hotel room that has a very... More

Because this is the only Hotel in Tuvalu, you more or less have to stay here. The Hotel is ok. The Price is way too high for what you get. The biggest problem is the staff, since they are just rude. We've never!! expierenced this kind of treatment. Uninterested, rude. I was really sick, check out was 10 am and... More
